Ok food, crab legs

The crab legs were good but most everything else was only so so. Most things not very hot but temp was not too bad if you didn't pile up your plate :). Service was real good.

Good selection of mostly fried seafood. Unlimited crab legs Yum! Price sounded high originally, but really turned out to be the same as every other place in PCB when all is said & done. Friendly staff & management.

The food wasn't cooked fully. They had very few choices to chose from. We got there at 8am (opening) and the food wasn't even all fresh! The only reason this got two stars is because they had some amazing tasting bacon! Will never go back. Not worth the price.

I expected maybe $20 dollars per person for a place like this, but $32 per person is outrageous! I've never given a bad review or a review much less, but when you pay $79 dollars for two people for mediocre food and undercooked crab legs it's just plan out WRONG. I've heard that the owners are really well off so... More

Not sure that the fish and shrimp are fresh, but if you don't get enough to eat it's your own fault. Only shrimp on lunch buffet is popcorn shrimp. Good variety of meats and veggies. We have eaten dinner here in past but you have to really love crab legs to warrant the extra cost over lunch.

Of all the restaurants we went to in Panama City Beach, this is one place we would probably not go back to. The main reason is we spent $219.00 plus tip for 6 people to eat and only 1 drink. The crab legs were good, but some came out to salty and watery. The others in our group tried the... More

This restaurant should only be open for dinner since that's when it seems to thrive. The lunch buffet was a disgusting joke. We will never be back to this restaurant.

My family and I drove down to PCB as a day getaway trip and originally had no intentions of staying over night, so we ate lunch here. We arrived here at 2:00 and they close at 2:30 to get ready for dinner. We didn't want to inconvenience the staff, but they assured us we could eat in peace and not... More

All you can eat seafood...really means peel and eat shrimp and crab legs. Salad bar was little, well the whole buffet was little. We've paid more for seafood buffets in other cities so can't really complain about the price but they also had more options...overall it was just average. We would probably return

You strictly go here for the crab legs buffet. We went as a party of eight and everyone had a enjoyable experience. The service was great, our drinks were never empty and when the plate of crab shells was full, she immediately replaced it with a new one. The other food on the buffet was ok at best but the...
